Quick update, New fuel filler/vent hoses on, rear bumpstops done, one run flat ring trimmed down and a new fuel level gauge will be here tomorrow. I'll try to get some pics uploaded this weekend.

Took it wheelinn Sat......and the transmission blew Luckly reverse still worked so I was able to back it up on the trailer. May have located a new tranny, have neighbors who race cars and have a few and he wants some wheels I have so may try to work out a trade.


Before she broke




Broke




Getting winched out of the pit




Back home and where it's going to sit until time to fix

Picked up a new to me TH350 and NP205 today. After I got them home I found an issue with 4 low. Not a big deal, however this case doesn't have the slip yoke setup like my current one so I will tear it down to see if it is a easy fix or not. Looks like I'll be keeping the Jeep a little longer. My wife wasn't crazy about me cutting up the LJ until it is paid off, so I'll be impatiently waiting till that day comes. Up next is getting the carb tuned and start 4 linking the rear.

Great looking CJ-7-8 man. I cant wait to see her all painted up and really laying the smack down on the trails. Keep up the good work.

This is a great thread. It took me years to find a scrambler in good shape to start building on. I got it, now I have to sell my cj7 to start it, wish I had seen this before that !

I'm now under the impression this jeep isn't getting painted which isn't all bad.

You would be correct. Unfortunately I have decided to sell the jeep and move on to another project

I appreciate all the compliments throughout the build! Sometimes I think I enjoy building them more that wheeling them. Some of the parts will live on in my new Cherokee project, heres the link if you want to check it out http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/1-ton-xj-1225733/

Here is the link to the classified add is anyone is interested http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f153/...oject-1234755/

Don't get me wrong, I'm not afraid to get dirty, but I'm over the whole playin in the mud thing and don't want to drive home covered in it. Orginally I was going to just buy a full top and keep the scrambler, but a new top for it was a little over a grand and adding a/c for the hot Florida summers would be about another grand. Started looking on craigslist and found this Cherokee that runs, drives and even the A/C works and picked it up for $675.
